      This is fantastic! The kids just inhaled it for dessert calling it "cake." I made just as written but replaced butter with coconut oil, left out the raisins and added a few chocolate chips instead. Very easy, healthy, and yummy. That's 5 stars from us. Thanks 1Steve....

      Delicious taste, and makes a very big loaf that holds together well in the toaster. But I did not rate it a 5 because I think the cooking directions are off. After 60 minutes it was still a little underdone in the center. But because it is so dense, a toothpick tester is not a clear indicator. So I had to put it back in the oven and bake this bread for 1 hr 15 minutes.

      Great recipe! I have made it exactly as writen and also with a couple of adjustments. Dates for raisins, a whole madarin orange (which I pureed in a blender) in place of the juice and rind of an orange. It tasted even more fabulous than the original.
